the governor. >> they have their own tax policies energy costs, property taxes which is a local issue as opposed to the state issue that they have to account for. if we can stop competition, we should do it. but, we don't have those things. it is not an even playing field. let me give you another example. my republican governor colleagues want to see medicaid blocked. almost all of my democratic colleagues don't want to see it done. most of the democrats represent state that is will not enter into a race to the bottom when it comes to medical benefits. connecticut is never going to act as one legislature did in a state to deny a kidney transplant to somebody whose life will be saved by it. if you block grant it, you have a bunch of states that are not going to do this or this. there are states that are trapped. they wouldn't tolerate putting someone to death over a bad kidney. this is a serious argument. we can all talk about how we compare ourselves. understand, underlying all of that is we are not comparable. >> i actually think you are making a really, you are giving me a great ope
in research and technology and clean energy. i want to put people back to work rebuilding our roads and bridges and our schools. and i want to do all this while bringing down our deficits in a balanced and responsible way.

weekend crew about the meaning of christmas. he says it's silly to spend so much energy getting upset at people during the festive season. if the clergy itself doesn't support the notion of a war on christmas, what is fox's purpose in continuing to hammer this line? >> well, if you took away all the things that the fox news -- the morning show people especially get worked up about, that like really are not problems, they wouldn't have a show. i don't know exactly what they're going to do if you take the war on christmas away from them. i, of course, am protesting the obama drone strikes on santa's workshop. i think that's probably going too far. but i do dream of a world in which we can all celebrate christmas openly. so let's just keep fighting. >> indeed. jonathan, alan west, who i know you like a great deal, is actually leaving congress. i know that's disappointed you, but listen to what he told npr about his future. listen to this, john. >> and always remember, abraham lincoln only serve one term in congress, too. >> dually noted. >> when you think alan west, do you think abraham
